Galvanic, High Frequency & Microcurrent Facial #review




We all know that skin condition is a matter of skin health and not just aesthetics. While a proper skin care is one of the most effective ways to maintain the issue of ageing, blemishes and dehydration, our skin could use an extra boost, which is why I recommend the use of electrical machines also known as facial and body electrotherapy. 

Electrotherapy is a range of beauty treatments that uses low electric currents passed through the skin to produce several therapeutic effects such as deep cleansing of the skin, muscle toning in the face and body and lifting of the face.Current technologies offer various electrical machines to aid in the treatment of skin condition. Such machines include High Frequency, Galvanic and Micro-Current.

As a professional I know many people aren't aware of the benefits of these treatments which could boost their confidence and self esteem as well as for the beauty therapist to be able to offer more treatments to clients and Salon owners which could increase their business in every way. Ageing, blemished and dehydrated skin are conditions that we all face. Our skin ages every day, and it is up to us to take the necessary preventive measures to ensure our skin ages at a slower frequency. Electrical treatments offer ways to address the issues that go with any skin condition to help clients maintain not only a youthful appearance, but also a good skin health.

Galvanic



A galvanic facial involves the use of mild electric direct currents consisting of positive and negative ions to refresh, stimulate and rejuvenate the skin. The average time for the treatment can vary from 25 to 40 minutes, prices also vary.  

The treatment aims to improve the skin in two ways: 

  • Cleansing which is a process called desincrustation, which a pre-treatment gel with a negative charge is applied to the skin; and 
  • nourishing through iontophoresis, which a second gel with a positive charge is applied to a clean and dry skin.
This is achieved by the application of a small, constant,direct current. The treatment works on the belief that charged ions in the skin are either attracted or repelled from the electrodes (conductors or probes). Galvanic treatment is normally done on the face for deep cleansing and on the body to treat cellulite. 


Benefits and effects of Galvanic:

• Tightening and firming of tissues.
• Decrease in blood flow.
• Decrease in sensitivity.
• Reduction of oedema and lymph stagnation.
• Oxygenation of cells.
• Calms and soothes the skin.
• Restores critical moisture.
• Regenerates the skin.
• Stimulates cell renewal and improves skin vitality.

High Frequency



High-frequency treatment uses low-current high-frequency alternating currents, carried via a glass electrode (conductor or probes). Because the high frequency current converts some of the oxygen in the air into ozone, the treatment has a germicidal action. The treatment is used to aid healing, and also to help desquamation (the skin's natural exfoliation), and stimulate sweat and sebaceous glands. 

This helps dry out spots and it is good for oily skin. An indirect high frequency facial uses a saturator electrode held by the client to draw a moisturising massage medium deeper into the skin, and so is best suited for more mature or dry skin types. The treatment also lasts between 25 to 40 minutes and it can be done once a week for the first 4 treatments and once a month after that. 
The machine can be used most on the face but can also be used on the back for a "back facial" (the same process for facials) to treat spots. 


Benefits of High Frequency:

• Stimulates circulation of the blood. 
• Increases glandular activity.
• Aids in elimination of toxins and absorption of nutrients to the cell.
•  Increases metabolism.
• Germicidal action occurs during use.
• Generates heat inside the tissues.
• Aids in deeper penetration of product into the skin.

Benefits of Indirect High Frequency:

• Aiding in the penetration of treatment creams/serums/complexes by increasing the blood flow.
• Regenerating the skin.
• Re-energising tired and stressed skin.
•  Assisting in massage for an ageing skin using the indirect method.

Microcurrent



Microcurrent is a low level of electrical current that reflects body’s own natural current, which is sub sensory in most causes and therefore barely noticeable. The treatment works by passing a very small direct current through muscle tissue to stimulate our sensory receptor and that is why it is very important that the beauty therapist knows exactly where the origins and insertion of the muscle are for best results.  

It is a anti ageing skin treatment used to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by improving texture and appearance of skin and reducing the overall visual appearance of ageing. Skin care therapists use micro-current to tone and firm the skin and it is most related to the term "non surgical face lifting".

The treatment can be done between 30 to 45 minutes and it depends on the client's skin type, condition and age. Most beauty salons offer the treatment by courses of 6 or 10 sessions and prices also vary. It can also be applied on the body (breasts) to help lifting the skin. 

Benefits of Microcurrent:

• Improve muscle tone in face and neck.
• Lift jowls and eyebrows.
• Skin exfoliation.
• Sun damaged treatment.
• Increase product penetration.
• Reduce wrinkles and eliminate fine lines
• Improve facial circulation

Best Beauty Looks at the 2015 Golden Globes




Hya Girls,

Another year and another Golden Globes Red Carpet... How beautiful and elegant those women looked! Their looks get better and better every time. To complement the stunning and amazing make-up looks they were transformed with their dazzling and shiny dresses. The hair styles were also so beautiful and makeup from soft and daring lips to dramatic and nude smokey eyes.



Not just the lips and the eyes but also the contouring and highlights which gave the looks a dazzling finish. The natural looks also made an statement....  I just love watching the red carpet events, it's a kind of party we (normal people) will never be part of but just seen what's on from makeup, to hairstyle and fashion can be quite exciting...




Even the older ones looked stunning from head to toe and they look like they will never aged. I like everything sparkling specially eye makeup and jewellery... One more beautiful than the other!! All our favourite film stars and television actors showed their gorgeous looks to inspire us every time!



Gorgeous waves, amazing red and dark lips and nude and dramatic smokey eyes, all in one night!!! lots of classic, old-Hollywood glamour, including deep side parts and sculpted waves galore..


I hope you like the post, let us know what look you liked best... 





@Avon_UK Shine Attract Lipstick #Review #Photos & #Swatches




Us, girls are always trying to find the best cosmetics on the market, it could be an affordable product or a designer top brand product. Most of those products we never know which one is the best and suitable for our skin.
I love Avon products which are very affordable and also very good and today I'm posting about Avon Shine Attract Lipstick.

I have to say I didn't pay much attention to the product at the beginning. When I opened the beautiful silver packaging and I saw the lipstick I left it in my makeup box for weeks, until my daughter used it and I saw the gorgeous shade and finish on her lips.

I asked her which one it was and when she told me that it was the Avon Shine Attract, I was amazed and I regret not using it before. 

As soon as I applied the lipstick I could feel the hydration and it is so creamy with a great smell. The outer gel layer gives a nice soft lips and the lipstick in the middle gives a lovely colour. It has SPF for protection and it's great for summer!

There are 9 shades and the best of all, Non-sticky... Amazing!

I hope you like it and let us know what you think...

Thank you for stopping by.
